"This dresser was in need of a facelift. There was burns marks, nicks scratches you name it. But I saw the potential! I started by stripping and staining the top. I wanted to preserve some of the beautiful wood. Then using a blend of two blue paints, I painted the body of the dresser. I sealed the entire piece with PolyCrylic so it will last for many years to come. Here’s the finished dresser. I just love how it turned out! "
